If you have $4 and like cyberpunk, help me put some food in my kids' mouths!
"This is secretly the greatest and also funniest cyberpunk point and click adventure game on Steam. Very low-fi art style but the gags are just too good to pass up, and a lot closer to a "real" cyberpunk dystopian future than most favorites of the genre."

Making your own Kahlúa: easy as pie, and totally worth it.

BIke racing 

Jumbo Visma is scary strong this year. Imagine having Wout van Aert as a domestique, when the guy just won the Strade Bianche *and* Milano Sanremo.

BIke racing 

Due to the extremely condensed race calendar in 2020, the Critérium du Dauphiné (starting today) looks like it'll be a fantastic edition this year! Certainly one with the most talent at the start line.

I lost count of all the podcasts I didn't subscribe to recently, because they don't offer an RSS feed.

Actually, scrap that. It's the same not just for candidates, but all positions during a politician's career. Especially so when they've become rulers.

Dumb: Judging political candidates by what they say.

Reasonable: Judging political candidates exclusively by their past actions.

Hit the deck pretty hard today, after a perfect storm of coincidences had me crash the bike.

It always amazes me how the brain lets you go long distances for hours on end after being injured, in order to get you back to your cave. But when you have arrived safely, it immediately turns off the mute button for pain, and tells you to stay put and heal.

I only just realized that there's usually not a single traffic light when I ride my bike around here. Not just to get out of the town, but no lights on the entire ride.

There's a single light in one direction out of town, and that's a temporary construction traffic light, where there's only one lane for both directions on the road.

There's a meta experiment set up here, when the results get shared on social media:

> Participants predicted that the average man and woman would react more positively to sex differences favouring their own sex. This was true of the average woman, although the level of own‐sex favouritism was lower than participants predicted. It was not true, however, of the average man, who – like the average woman – reacted more positively to the female‐favouring differences.

The actual default shutdown confirmation screen. Im weeping even harder now.

#Protip: "Drafts" on Mastodon

Mastodon doesn't natively support a "draft mode", where in-process toots can be saved and re-edited.

... but ... you can emulate this by setting default posting to "DM", and not filling in any recipients. A DM toot not shared with any third parties is visible only to yourself. You can then post, and delete/redraft this toot until it's complete to your satisfaction.

On devices/platforms where Web content is prone to disappear without notice (o hai Chrome Android mufferphuckerz) this may prove useful, especially where researching links / content for a substantial toot.

(Still mad at HP for what they did to the Pre 3 and webOS.)
